ExperienceMy experience in teaching includes:
6 years high school science teacher of generals physics, general chemistry, AP physics;
1 year high school robotics/engineering teacher;
Taught college introductory physics and environmental science;
9 years university science and math methods instructor;
I have extensive experience in course development, curriculum projects, and scholarship in education, especially science education.
I have experience in writing for publication, computer programming, and web development.
HobbiesI'm a reader and love both fiction and nonfiction, mainly related to science. I also love being in nature, hiking, biking, and exploring the environment. I enjoy trips to the Living Desert and other local settings.
